People who floss everyday are less likely to develop Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and tooth decay.

In other words, if you agree to run a tiny piece of string through your gums for thirty seconds seven times a week, you are more likely to keep all your teeth and live a longer healthier life.

Yet, almost 19% of Americans don’t floss.

There is a metaphor in there somewhere…

Like flossing, our lives consists of numerous tiny actions, that when compounded daily, offer huge benefits down the road. Saving, investing, dieting and exercising are a few that might come to mind.

If you’re interested in changing your life, stop looking for the big break. There is no big break.

Instead, find small actions you can do daily that can compound into massive change.

And, also, floss your damn teeth.

One day these one minute writings will be a big book called “One Minute, Please.” Can I let you know when that day comes?

You can say yes, here.
